--A resident of Sidney
, named William Blankinship
, was examined yesterday before Justices Jno. W. Leigh
and Corbin Burton
, at the County Court-House
, for shooting a man named Crow
, on Monday evening last.
The accused was remanded for examination before the regular term of the Court
, and sent back to jail.
The prisoner says the man Crow
and others came into his house and demanded liquor, which being refused them, they commenced, as usual, to break up everything in reach.
To save his property and self from harm, he shot Crow
, the most active of the party, with the contents of an old musket.
At night several of the latter's friends, including John Landrum
and Peter Critz
appeared before his door, and, under pretence of being officers, they induced Blaninship to leave his domicil, after which they fell aboard of him and gave him an unmerciful flagellation.
were required to give security for their good behavior.
